The Adventurers' Guild:
Bard Songs

  The Song I sing
Will tell the tale
Of a cold and wintery day;

Of castle walls
And torchlit halls
And a price man had to pay.

When evil fled
And brave men bled
The Dark one came to stay.

Till men of old
For blood and gold
Had rescued Skara Brae.


The following songs have been respectfully taken from Mecandes' Bard's Tale Compendium and from Lina's unforgettable Bard Songs. Visit these pages whenever you have time to.
